RIO RANCHO, N.M. — One person died after a single-vehicle crash on NM 528 Wednesday evening.
Rio Rancho Police Capt. Andrew Rodriguez declined to identify the victim because next-of-kin hadn’t been notified.
He said the vehicle was traveling southbound on NM 528 about 4:45 p.m. when it veered over the median, went across the northbound lanes and crashed into the retaining wall on the east side of the roadway. The cause of the crash is still under investigation.
Rodriguez said no other vehicles were involved.
As of 6:45 p.m., police were still blocking traffic on NM 528 in both directions from Corrales Road to Kim Road. Vehicles were being diverted.
